a woman welcome to the pullback we begin at the united nations where there's been a shield and between russia and the united states over an alleged chemical weapons attack in syria russia denies the attack on the town of doom that took place even offering to fly weapons inspectors to the site to see for themselves whilst the u.s. at war and a historic moment have been reached and it would be responding regardless of anyone else well the u.n. syria envoy also issued an urgent call for action at that emergency meeting they urge if that group because of it in accordance with its own mandate do one gain in the notion not be to figuratively and not polled the international go to for godsake ensure make a move move from doing both to give if the allegation and attribute responsibility . well for in the story which i bet mike hammer the united nations headquarters in
new york hi there mike so we heard two theri differing narratives at that security council meeting which i guess goes to confirm this norma's gulf that exists in terms of solving this yes indeed you heard their plea for unity from the special envoy to syria and certainly there was very little a unity evident within the security council chamber the russian and better advanced and alternative theory as one could put it he insisted that there had been no chemical weapons attack the syrian government was not responsible in any way if there was such an attack he insisted it could have been carried out by opposition groups under the direction of american advisers and the intended to justify a military strike against the syrian government this is what he had to say in a barbed comment across the floor towards the u.s.
ambassador your resume to would was to put i call for those who will speak against me slandering the regime to proceed with the premise that there was no chemical weapons attack sweden drew up a draft resolution to investigate the incident we are willing to consider this resolution today we propose to let the o.p.c. w. fly to damascus immediately to morrow there the syrian authorities in russian troops will provide conditions to travel to the area of the incident for them to familiarize themselves with the situation this is what president trump and other western leaders called upon us to undertake. well whether the o.p.c. w. would seize such a mission as being an independent one that is something that they will have to make clear within coming hours or indeed to days the u.s. has made a proposal in terms of which an investigative mechanism would be set up by the u.n. an independent one with
a one year mandate which would be tossed with investigating this type of chemical weapons attack and the us ambassador made very very clear that it was time for the security council to take some kind of action or else we are on the edge of a dangerous precipice the great evil of chemical weapons use that once unified the world in opposition is on the verge of becoming the new norm the international community must not let this happen we are beyond showing pictures of dead babies we're beyond appeals to conscience we have reached the moment when the world must see justice done history will record this as the moment when the security council either discharged its duty or demonstrated its utter and complete failure to protect the people of syria either way the united states will respond
well or not so veiled threat and during the session the leaders the ambassadors of the u.k. france send the us were huddled together in earnest an intense conversation raising the possibility that in the wake of massive security council disunity some members could choose to take a unilateral and forceful action account of their life in the united nations mike thank you. yes president on will trump has also been taking an aggressive line promising a major policy decision on syria within forty eight hours after talks with his ministry he was speaking after calling a cabinet missing to examine his options on syria our white house correspondent kimberly how could has been following events in washington d.c. . u.s. president donald trump says he wants someone to pay for the spec did chemical
attack in duma on monday he convened his cabinet to discuss it it was an atrocious attack it was horrible when you are studying that situation extremely closely we are meeting with our military and everybody else. will be making some major decisions over the next twenty four to forty eight hours to help make those decisions seated directly behind the president and marking his first day as trumps national security advisor john bolton and chief architect of the u.s. led invasion of iraq fifteen years ago and known for his hawkish views on north korea and iran trump is pointing a finger at iran among others first of portie the syrian government potentially being complicit in the duma attack if it's russia if it's syria if it's a red if it's all of them together we'll figure it out. no the answer is
quite sure trump has even taken the rare step of directly naming russian president vladimir putin in proportioning the blame. trying to threat of retaliation comes one year after launching airstrikes in a syrian air field following a chemical attack on civilians in the town of clergy and nearly a week after he said he wanted the us to get out of syria i want to bring our troops back home i want to start rebuilding our nation it's time. there was no you did that on monday as the defense secretary said the pentagon is now considering its options also questioning the role the russians played in the latest attack. if you. read through the framework. of the. weapons it is a question the united states must now explore as the u.s. president continues to meet here at the white house with top military advisers he
is promising a decision within the next day on any u.s. action in syria kimberly health at al-jazeera at the white house meanwhile on the ground in syria fifty thousand rebel fighters and their families have begun leaving tomorrow it's part of a russian sponsored exchange deal which requires the josh all islam rebel group to surrender all prisoners before leaving santa has more from beirut. they are leaving from the last rebel pocket in eastern who. has surrendered up to eight thousand fighters from the rebel group and more than forty thousand of their family members and anyone else who wants to leave are being bussed out of the city the russian military has given them safe passage to rebel held areas in northern syria as part of a deal that also involved. releasing all of its prisoners many. them held for years and among them women and children they arrived at
a government controlled crossing late on sunday. the deal came after a suspected chemical attack in the city that killed dozens of people doctors and rescue workers saying many of the victims suffocated informed at the mouse symptoms indicative of exposure to some kind of chemical agent damascus and its backer moscow dismissed the claims as fabrication it isn't the first time chemical weapons are believed to have been used by the syrian government against civilians hours after the attack agreed to return to the negotiating table it wasn't clear why the initial collapse on friday but when it did the pro-government alliance launched an all out military offensive to pile pressure on the rebel group the evacuation deal reached or what amounts to a surrender is similar to the agreement with two other rebel factions in eastern who gave up after a fierce bombing campaign. was hoping for
a different deal that would allow it to remain in control of duma but under the overall jurisdiction of the government that didn't happen what they did manage to get is a guarantee that russia's military police will enter the city and those who chose to stay won't be harassed or detained by state security forces much of duma is now rubble the largest urban center in the eastern suburbs of damascus has been a target since opposition fighters captured the area in two thousand and thirteen. it was the main hub of anti-government protests close to the capital and from there rebels were able to threaten the government seat of power by frequently launching rockets into neighborhoods. seven years later the pro-government alliance is declaring victory but the seven week offensive killed nearly two thousand civilians this is the worst defeat suffered by the opposition since the fall of aleppo in late two thousand. and sixty one of her own beirut. russia and syria have accused
israel of carrying out air strikes on a military base in central syria they said two fighter jets struck the tile u.s. base in homes killing several people for elian ends are said to be among the dead the site is believed to be controlled by iranian forces which backed the syrian government the sixteen people have been killed and dozens more injured after a ballistic missile attack in activists on the ground say russia which backs the syrian government is responsible for the attack it is the largest area still under rebel control. the f.b.i. has raided the office of president tom's personal lawyer michael cohen seizing amongst other documents records of payments to the porn star stormy daniels let's go live now to washington where we can speak to diane estabrook hi there diane so
how significant is this. julie this is very significant this is a bombshell here in washington today michael cohen has been the president's personal attorney for about twelve years he's not only is his attorney he's an advisor and the president's so-called fixer so as you mentioned some of the items that were seized today were personal correspondence in the form of e-mails between cohen and his clients which would include president trump tax documents and also business records now the president has said that he didn't you never had an affair with stormy daniels he didn't know anything about this payments that cohen had made to stormy daniels but you you have to think that this information that was. gotten today was seized today by the f.b.i. they may be looking for some link between the president and the adult film star this was not part of robert muller's russia probe however their evidence or
information that he turned up in the probe was handed over to the u.s. justice department which prompted this this raid today and now this investigation and this is not likely to make the president very happy he has been very vocal about the miller investigation he's been very critical of it and for the president it's likely that to him that the rush of pro bowler have stepped over a line we haven't heard anything yet from the president he hasn't tweeted anything yet but we're likely to hear something within the next several hours we have heard from cohen's attorney he said that that what happened today was inappropriate the way it was carried out was inappropriate so a big story here in washington that is still developing dynasty and live from washington thank you. facebook c.e.o. mark zuckerberg has apologized to u.s. lawmakers for a privacy breach affecting millions of users in
